MTS does a fine job by reducing price of devices to reach greater range of people. But as private GSM operators going to enter in 3G space with data services, who will invest on long validity pack of MBlaze? Even MTNL & BSNL both offering unlimited plans at  just Rs2500 on 3G, there will be a few taker of MTS MBlaze. MTS even does not have pan India coverage!
